Arrow 4K Blu-Ray By The End Of 2014?

Quote:
Meanwhile, Blu-Ray Discs with 4K support could be a reality by the end of the year, according to the Blu-Ray Disc Associationís global promotions committee chair Victor Matsuda.

Talking to THR at CES, he noted that the BDA board recently approved work to extend Blu-Ray to include 4K and will be exploring the best possible technical blueprint.

Driving this work are members of a task force made up of representatives from 17 companies including Sony, Technicolor, Dolby, Fox and Disney.

The target for completion is yearís end.

No - the BDA just said they will create 4KBD. They won't announce the specs until they introduce the product

Odd that the BDA thinks that 4k BD is less than a year away, while the studios have made not a peep about wanting it. They're all blowing the digital trumpet. Speaking of which...

Meanwhile Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE), the consortium behind the cloud-based Digital HD service UltraViolet, is looking into adding support not just for 4K but for higher dynamic range and related features.

The next "high definition audio" story.

How many HD audio disks and players are around now?

If you have a huge TV set of projector you'll notice the difference. My concern is what comes after? The way things are changing, what you buy today is obsolete tomorrow.

It'd be nice if they just released a $50 player with no decoding capabilities since upcoming 4K tvs have H.265 support integrated.

Do the H.265 chips have a built-in decryption module?

I would have to see it to believe it, if they release a standalone 4K bluray player by the end of this year (or early next year).

I don't see this happening for a long time, if ever. Hope I'm wrong, as I'm a fan of physical media as much as anybody. But the studios appear to be totally uninterested in propping up physical any longer and seem committed to digital.

When the studios start talking, I'll start believing. The BDA obviously doesn't share the studio's vision.

The BD will probably announce 4KBD at CES 2015 having put the specs together in 2014.
